At some point, the inhabitants of Gendius V were threatened by a plague. A group of individuals visiting the world saved the local people from the disease, and several young adventurers from Gendius V joined the group, becoming the followers of one of their saviors.
Behind the scenes
Gendius V was first mentioned in "Do You Know Who I Am?," an article written by Owen K.C. Stephens and published on March 28, 2002 as part of the Tips and Tactics column on the Wizards of the Coast official website. The world is mentioned in an adventure suggestion for use with the Star Wars Roleplaying Game, which this article plays out as described. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Gendius system, and therefore Gendius V, in grid square J-17.
